'Diana' Poster Placed at Paris Crash Site was a "Coincidence"

'Diana' Poster Released
It was discovered that a movie poster advertising Diana was placed near the entrance to Place de l’Alma, the Parisian tunnel where Diana, Princess of Wales died in a 1997 car crash.

A friend of Diana's told the Daily Express that poster's proximity to the tunnel was "despicable and a shameless attempt at publicity."

Not so, according to advertising agency JCDecaux, who explained to Deadline London that the poster's placement was merely a coincidence, and that it had been taken down at that location at the request of French distributor Le Pacte today.

A rep for Le Pacte clarified that exact locations are not selected for the distribution of posters, and that there are more than 1,000 around the city right now.

The critically-panned biopic, starring Naomi Watts, took in just over one million dollars its opening weekend in the UK.  It will open stateside on November 1st.
